Yerba Mate´ is a tea grown in most rainforests. It is a healthy alternative to coffee as it is naturally caffeinated, has a positive effect on the immune system, contains antioxidants, improves indigestion, and provides mental clarity. You’re probably thinking, “What does tea have to do with skateboarding?” Guayaki sponsors skaters such as Matt Pailes and Ed Selego. Giving you energy and clarity, I can see how it can strengthen skateboarding ability, as well as life in general. Guayaki Yerba Mate´ is 100% organic. By supporting it you protect its 25, 000 acre rainforest reserve in Paraguay. They have all sorts of flavors such as, Chocolatte´, Magical Mint, Chai spice, and of course Traditional. It comes either as tea bags or loose tea. With the loose tea you can use a French press, coffee maker, or a mate´ gourd. My personal favorite is a Mate´ Late´, using a French press, with soymilk and honey (hot in the morning and iced in the afternoon, MMMMM). This amazing tea also seems to repress hunger and it’s the perfect snack between meals. Go out and drink some Guayaki Yerba Mate´. You will feel the positivity it empowers!
